Live with Grace

Thanks you have the grace
needed by so many
you are like our granny
ma'am regards from me
on human kind's behalf
do accept it please

world has always lived past
such natural calamities
in 1918 Spanish Flu
25 percent vanished
of the then population

now we all are one too many
7.5 billions with human pace
yes no disgrace
many more on this Earth
shall continue to trace
as we exit this now
temporarily forgotten
rotting freaking place

of the more honest pieces I've read about this phenomenon. Most feel it is a purposeless thing, something that just popped out of the air. This poem traces a genesis, a sort of spiritual one.


I was in ALBANY last year
wish I had known
we could have met
